    Summary

    In which everything is the same except Steve has a cat.

    Garfield (aka “Harrington’s demon cat”, “that ginger monster”, “meanest bitch in Hawkins”) is an absolute beast of a cat. She's picky and violent and has, on multiple occasions, actually drawn blood from people just for existing in her space. Not Steve though; she loves Steve more than anything else in the world.

    And for some reason, she *doesn’t* hate Billy Hargrove.

    - - - - -

    “Garfield,” Tommy repeats incredulously, “Steve’s Garfield?”

    “Well, I’m not talkin’ bout the one in the fucking funny strips, am I?” Billy asks, annoyed and a little baffled.

    “Steve’s cat, Garfield,” Carol repeats, slowly, like she thinks he’s a bit dumb. He scowls at her and she ignores it entirely. “She was sweet to you? Sweet how?”

    Jesus Christ. “I dunno, how are any cats sweet? She purred a lot and went all relaxed when I held her – usual cat stuff.”

    “You held her?!” Tommy shouts, draws eyes all to their table until Carol whips around to glare the rest of the cafeteria into submission. In a low wild hiss, “you held Steve Harrington’s cat and you’re still alive?”

    Summary

    Maybe the next ten days, while your parents take a couples vacation with the Harringtons and you need to house-sit, would be nice: a quiet house, no need to let them know where you were all the time, and getting to see some of the classmates you haven't seen since you left for college.

    But most of all, it could mean less opportunities for your parents and Steve's to force you two to put bright smiles on your faces, pretending you didn’t hate each other while sitting around the dinner table.

    Little did you know – for the next ten days, you would be seeing Steve Harrington a lot more than you bargained for.

    Summary

    Steve Harrington was not considered an insightful sort of person. Most, even many of those closest to him, never believed him particularly bright or contemplative. He was not keen to correct these assumptions, and in many ways thought them the truth.

    Yet when he had the mind to, Steve Harrington could read people.

    Summary

    Parentified children are not given the time, care, love, emotional support, grounding, or security needed to develop and thrive. Without a role model, they are deprived of the opportunity to learn through observation and guardianship. For the most part, they are expected to keep it together and never show signs of distress. If they were to be needy or vulnerable, they are either ignored or sometimes punished. Eventually, they internalize the message that having needs and desires is not acceptable. They become ashamed of their vulnerabilities, and eventually, emotional numbness and self-denial become their second nature

    ***
    Or: 5 times Steve was the adult + 1 time everyone remembered that he's barely one.

    Summary

    And maybe New York isn’t any better than Hawkins. Maybe he’ll always be sad, or whatever the fuck. Maybe dreams are just dreams and maybe he’ll never see Eddie again or talk about him, but also he could be doing something here. Something remarkable or unremarkable, but something all the same. Maybe he’ll call his mother and convince her to finally visit. Maybe he’ll start to go out more. Quit his job. Start all over again. A new life for real this time. The possibilities are endless. He has Robin by his side and about seven kids-who-aren't-kids-anymore waiting to argue with him tomorrow morning.

    --Steve, Robin, Nancy, and Eddie take on life after Hawkins, drifting apart and coming together again at the end of it all.

    Summary

    Steve is, unfortunately, very much familiar with the feeling of blood running down his nose.

    Or: Steve has secrets better left in bedtime stories, but with bodies piling up in Hawkins and enough spite to get through the day, he can and will figure out what's going on, or at least die trying.

    Or: One can either watch and condemn many or participate and condemn few. There are seldom happy endings for failed government experiments.

    Summary

    Eddie breathes out slowly, trying to stop his brain from dissolving, and shoots Steve a flirty grin. "You completely trying to reverse the societal interaction rules, then?"

    Steve blinks, looking startled and nervous, and a little turned on. "What?"

    "Well," Eddie says, hooking his thumbs through Steve's belt loops, "society tells you men are for friendship, and women are for fucking. You said you decided that women are for friendship too, actually. So can I understand this," he tugs Steve's waist forwards, until Steve is pressing both of them against the tiled wall, "as you deciding men are also for fucking? Because -"

    He tilts his head forwards, his cheek brushing Steve's as he says quietly into Steve's ear, "I'd be interested if you are."

    Summary

    Moments like this made him feel normal. He was making dinner for the person he loved after work. He wasn't someone who fought monsters from another dimension. He didn't have nightmares, or panic attacks, or migraines. He certainly hadn't ever been beaten nearly to death in a Russian bunker.

    He was just Steve. And he loved Eddie.

    --

    This is the sequel to There's No Mystery to This Man.

     

    A slight AU where Steve and Eddie have been together since the previous summer. Leading into season 4.

    Summary

    nothing could outweigh the absolute disgust that consumed steve whenever he caught sight of himself in the mirror.

    billy’s comment had stung; burned. those all-seeing eyes of hargrove’s had torn a hole in steve’s core, a gaping wound in which his very essence seeped from. he was vulnerable and raw, and so fucking tired.

    the prey to billy’s predator.

    Summary

    Which, by the looks of it, he had. He was wearing a graphic t-shirt that said Iron Maiden in bold letters and some blue boxer briefs that had ridden up on his thighs. His long hair was messy and the light from the window behind him made it look like it glowed.

    “Well…” Steve started, suddenly feeling a bit of a loss for words. “How do you clean your vest…?” He asked, raising it.

    Summary

    “So, like.. sorry if this is overstepping or anything but what’s your relationship like with your family? I’ve just never heard you talk about them. I assumed you had a bad relationship with them. Family reunions out the window and all that.”

    Sometimes Eddie Munson could read Steve Harrington like a book. Dog ear the pages to save them for later, creasing the words a little bit but no worries. He could easily smooth the paper back out.
